Can you believe I scrapped?!

Yes, it is true, I actually put together a layout last night!
And it felt darn good too!

After visiting some of my favorite challenge blogs I decided the
pink and black challenge over at Dreamgirls was the one for me!
I even went outside my comfort zone and scrapped a horizontal 8.5x11,
or should I say 11x8.5.

The challenge, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, was to use only black and pink paper and no patterned paper, and use a piece of lace.

I took this photo in July during Alex and Colby's Queen's speech
and interview at State 4H Horseshow.

I know I've blogged about Alex & Colby's relationship before,
but it's worth stating again that these two girls have so much fun together during horseshow season. Even thought Colby is younger than Alex and even with Alex's competitive spirit, they just "gee-haw" and I appreciate the friendship they have formed. Colby and her family are just "good people" (I know , I'm using a lot of old timer language tonight, but sometimes it's necessary!)

I utilized several embellishments and fun little bits and pieces that I've been hoarding...why do I do it?
Like this fun Marilyn Monroe playing card and the little chipboard piece that was in one of my style phyle kits from SIStv.

I pledge to scrap more - I really do.
It felt good to get my "creative" on.

If there are other scrappers that read this blog, I challenge you to do a challenge too!
